Recreation and Wellness COVID-19 Precautions

Updated - 9/7/20
We want to let you know about an update to our health and safety procedures: face coverings are now required at all times in Recreation and Wellness facilities, and may no longer be removed during exercise. Members may only remove their face covering while showering, drinking or during water activities while in the pools/diving wells.  

We are experiencing increased traffic at RecWell as classes resume and as the Maroon and Gold Sunrise Plan brings more students back to residence halls, and we want to do our part to help slow the spread on campus. Our revised mask policy is not a replacement for other good health practices, so we encourage you to continue maintaining physical distance and wash your hands regularly. 

Your safety, and that of our staff, is our top priority, and we have implemented health and safety guidelines set by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the University of Minnesota. Many of our services, amenities, and activities will be available in phases, and some of our spaces will have new capacity limits based on the guidelines and out of an abundance of caution. 

We need your cooperation, and that of all of our members, to help keep our community safe so please wear your mask and do not visit our facilities if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. More details about our safety precautions and what you need to know before you visit can be found on our FAQ page.


Reservations are now required for lap swimming, shooting hoops, bouldering, and practicing in the racquetball/handball/sqash courts.
